On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the LORD in remembrance, take no rest,
and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.
Watchmen on the wall is the department of Intercessors. These are men and women who live and breathe prayer and intercede on behalf of the local church, the universal church and the whole nation. Their specific mission is transforming the nation of Rwanda to become God’s dwelling place.
Zion Temple Watchmen on the wall are strategically organized in a way that they meet to pray in three different shifts in order to have intercession taking place for 24 hours/7 days. The first shift being from 5:00AM to 7:00AM, the second one from 09:00 to 14:00 and an overnight that starts at 21:00 and ends at 05:00 the following day. This is a commitment that takes place year in and year out until God reveals more of His Glory to the nations.
The watchmen on the wall have regular activities like a monthly three-day prayer and fasting which starts on the last Sunday of the month, 40 days of prayer and fasting every year which ends a few days before Christmas – to develop a deeper devotion, to strengthen the values of prayer as a way of life, to faithfully fulfill with love the commitment to intercede. To reach out an ever-increasing number of dedicated intercessors, young adults are also trained to become prayer warriors.
Moses Generation is the Sunday school department for children from ages 3 to 12 years old. In this department, we teach our children the core values of Zion Temple Celebration Center which is to become a transformational tool of God to the people.
Here, we understand that we are developing the next generation of leaders, a privilege that we do not take for granted.
We train our children in the ways of the Lord. This is so that they may grow in their knowledge of the Lord, mature in His ways and make God’s Word a reality in their lives as well as in every person they meet. Specifically, with the mission of introducing Jesus Christ in a manner that transforms their lives by encouraging them to develop a personal relationship with Him through prayer and a solid foundation of biblical truths.
Moses Generation regularly meets in holiday retreats, to pray, read the Word of God, play, express themselves and cultivate a relationship with God. They also have a Christmas festival during Christmas.
52 Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; for there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2 Shake yourself from the dust and arise; be seated, O Jerusalem; loose the bonds from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. 3 For thus says the LORD: “You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.”
Daughters of Zion is the department of women, strategically designed to touch, empower, include, involve, and encircle every woman of Zion Temple Celebration Center. These engage young girls to be great mothers in the future but also endeavor to be pillars of the revival in the church.
It is a vision of unity where the current support of feminine grace display strongly and openly gentleness that is foreshadowed as strength; where peace insists on reigning; a kind word is freely passed around; and love is expected to stretch to great lengths.
Daughters of Zion also aims to welcome women with open arms, connect them to God and others, equip them to live out God’s purpose for their lives, and send them out to share Christ’s love, driven by Zion Temple Celebration Center’s vision, which is to “transform our communities to become the dwelling place of God”. Through healthy small groups, authentic mentorship, and outreach opportunities. Daughters of Zion seeks to ignite passion for the Great Commandment and Great commission in the heart of every woman on earth. With a doctrinally sound and programmatic approach to ministry, Daughters of Zion not only seeks to meet every woman at the point of her need, but to also strengthen her so that she may reach the point of her abundance.
For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his dwelling place: “This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provisions; I will satisfy her poor with bread. Her priests I will clothe with salvation, and her saints will shout for joy. There I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.
